RUMOURS are circulating around the real estate industry that Ben Gough has sold his share in Harcourts Bundaberg and left the company, following accusations of improper conduct.
The news comes two weeks after claims on national television that Mr Gough allegedly acted improperly in his dealings with a couple selling their Thabeban home.
An independent review into the sale was launched by Harcourts head office in Brisbane last week, with Mr Gough offering to return the profit he made if he was found to have done the wrong thing.
“We are still in the process of finalising the arrangement and our relationship with Ben Gough,” Harcourts chief executive officer Aaron Brooks said.
He declined to comment further.
Mr Gough was contacted by the NewsMail yesterday but refused to comment.
There has been no official word on Harcourts' investigation.
